  • Highly recommended to visit the museum. There is an amazing photography exposition and a traditional Vietnamese dresses from each area of the country. The staff working at the museum is super friendly and willing to share information about the Vietnamese culture.
  • Having traveled for over a month now in Vietnam, it is really wonderful to be able to read about and see the traditional dress of all the different ethnic groups in Vietnam. A great educational resource and important for cultural preservation.
  • Really great place to visit - we stayed there for a long time looking at the beautiful photos then viewing the exhibition on the different tribes. I learnt so much and would definitely recommend this to other tourists. The entry is free but you'll leave knowing so much more about Vietnamese culture.
  • Amazing exposition. Really well organized and presented . A great way to know about the different ethnicities and regions of Vietnam through the local costumes and pictures. Would recommend it a 100% during your stay in Hoi An
  • Very cool to see (almost) all the ethnic diversity Vietnam has to offer in one free museum. I like how you get quite some info about the tribes and the people on the photographs, really brings them a lot closer. I think it's great the museum is free. I'm not too sure about the ethics of taking traditional clothing and other attributes from these tribes and people though. Tough question. Maybe it'd be better to commission the creation of new pieces in stead of taking used ones off people. I don't know. Definitely visit if you're near!
